Three hours in the saddle on the tracks of Sparrow Hill, in Kowen Forest, Canberra, was a bit of a change for many folk on Saturday evening (May 30 2015). It was dark, dark, but there was no shortage of track light. New technology has put high-powered lighting on mountain bikes these days. And it was rather chilly, about 10 deg C, and falling, with a bitter little northerly contributing to the chill factor. But once the waves of different classes were under way, warmed up and in the shelter of the pine forest, there were few complaints, and lots of smiles.
